Hello fellers!

I was just thinking about an old and deceased friend of mine who had a really nice little revolver I really liked. It's been 20 years since I've seen it , but to the best of my knowledge it was a 3 to 3 1/2 inch barrel S&W model 36. Am I correct in the model number? I'm pretty sure it was a "J" frame 5 shot ,38 special. I'm not sure about the barrel length, all I remember is that it felt REALLY good in my short fingered hand. It seemed to be a really handy size, it looked neat, and he said it shot much beter than it should. Do you guys or gals run into these very often? I would love to find one affordable for me to snatch up!!

It was probably a 3" one. Here's a pic of my 3" model 36-no dash with a tapered barrel. Some other like the 36-1, etc. have a 3" heavy barrel.

In my fading memory the barrel was longer, but I'm pretty sure your right after doing a little snooping. I wonder how many 3" models were made compared to the 2" mod 36's?

Beautiful pic. If you don't mind I would like to save that pic as "desktop".

I have a nickel 3" Mod. 36 no dash/flat latch, but unfortunately have no good pictures of it. I've actually been thinking about selling it or trading it. Nice little gun, though.
